In order to further digitalize our business interactions together with our suppliers, we are now using the Strategic Sourcing Suite (SSS) by SAP Ariba to handle the sourcing, supplier management and contracting process.
Each potential ABB supplier must undergo a two-step verification process, including registration and qualification. Participation in tenders as well as registration and qualification with ABB will be free of charge for all the suppliers.
The SAP Ariba Strategic Sourcing Suite (SSS) is implemented in all locations across ABB. Therefore, all ABB buyers will have a full picture of every supplier’s capabilities, even in countries, where they are not collaborating with ABB yet.
The suppliers can easily manage all business interaction with ABB from their SAP Ariba account, including RFI, RFQ, RFP, eAuctions and contracts. At any time, they can track the status of the ongoing interaction – respond to requests and monitor qualification. All changes to master data, such as adjusting the address or any other contact details, will be updated automatically for all connected customers in the SAP Ariba platform.
This process involves SAP Ariba account creation and ABB registration questionnaire completion. In order to complete the registration, the supplier will receive a system generated invitation letter on behalf of the ABB buyer and will be requested to follow through the process.
To start the registration process, use the registration link provided in the invitation email.
Fill out all the mandatory fields in the questionnaire and submit the ABB Registration Form.
Congratulations! You are now part of the SAP Ariba Network and able to receive tenders from ABB.
Once the supplier is successfully registered with ABB, they are eligible to be invited for qualification. The ABB contact will send a system generated invitation for qualification to be completed via the supplier’s SAP Ariba account.
After the supplier submits the qualification form back to ABB, we will review it internally and assess, if the supplier will be qualified as ABB supplier.
To start the qualification process, click on the link in the email invitation.
Click on "Log in" to enter you account on SAP Ariba Login page.
Fill out all the mandatory fields in the ABB Qualification Questionnaire and submit the form.
ABB will review the questionnaire and additional clarification and risk mitigation actions might follow, such as audit or financial review.
